In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at a Canon 7D Mark II teardown, the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, fixing glasses glare and event photography patents.

  • In Cracking Open the 7D II, Roger Cicala compares the weather sealing of the new Canon 7D Mark II with its predecessor but can't help pointing out some "non-weather sealing stuff," too.
  • Alan Taylor's In Focus chronicles the history of The Berlin Wall, 25 years after the fall when "West German citizens swarmed the wall, pulling parts of it down with hammers and machinery, an act that set the stage for Germany's reunification."
  • Jodi Friedman shows How to Fix Glasses Glare in Photoshop but she cleverly takes two shots on location to do it.
  • Photo Attorney Carolyn Wright reports that Peter Wolf's event photography patents have been declared invalid. "In sum," she writes, "the Court found that the patents were based on patent ineligible abstract ideas and lack an inventive concept that would make them patent eligible."

More to come...
